Sociology Professor Jennifer Reich wasn’t surprised by two recent polls revealing that low numbers of Coloradans actually want to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The Colorado Health Foundation found nearly one-third of Coloradans surveyed said they would likely not step up to get vaccinated for coronavirus when a vaccine becomes available, and an AARP poll found that if a free coronavirus vaccine were available today more Coloradans would choose not to get it than would choose to receive it. “The COVID vaccine is leaving people who are already uncomfortable with vaccines and vaccine safety with new questions,” Reich said.

A huge number of Coloradans already say they won't get a coronavirus vaccine. Will politics make it worse?
